Hike to Pulpit Rock for expansive views of Lysefjord from atop this 10,000-year-old natural rock formation. The relatively mild 4 km (2.5 mi) climb can last one to three hours depending on your fitness and hiking experience, and will take you 604 m (1,981 ft) above sea level. Bring your camera to capture some of the great views. Be sure to check the weather forecast in advance, as rain or fog could obscure the sea. Keep in mind that it is not recommended to hike this trail when there is still snow on the ground.

  • Lovely and beautiful tour. Approx. 2 hours up to the Preikestolen-depending on the shape and how many viewing stops you want. The road requires proper footwear and layer-on-layer clothing can be handy, as the wind can be cold. Remember water. Crazy many tourists but still worth it.
